For a long time, most people had to fiddle with a French press or a drip coffee maker to make to their morning brew—that is, until Keurig changed the game. Keurig machines revolutionized at-home brewing with their innovative pod-operated, single-serve coffee brewer design that allows people to simplify the process and get straight to the cup. However, the taste can sometimes be a hit-or-miss, as the machine is programmed to brew every K-Cup the exact same way, regardless of roast or flavor.

Is chicken soup really good for the soul?

While the canned, store-bought stuff is good in a pinch, nothing beats homemade. These recipes showcase the variety, healthy benefits, full flavor and everything else a hearty bowl of chicken soup has to offer.
